Lake District Attractions
There are millions of visitors to the area every year and although many have their own transport, many others rely on public transport services to get around. If you donít have a car or just want to leave it behind for the day, why not utilise the excellent public transport network across the area, sit back and enjoy the journey to local attractions.
It is often difficult to find current public transport information with outdated timetables and incorrect service listings. This website aims to provide all the information you need to visit local attractions by public transport and there will be regular updates including significant changes.
If you do have your own transport, why not try one of the fabulous drives described in our sister website Lake District Drives.
Each attraction details the public transport services that stop nearby (within 1 mile) and also where the stop is in relation to the attraction. The modes of public transport included are bus, train and boat. Each transport mode has a link for further details of each service, including timetable, approximate route and other attractions visited on route.

Windermere station at the end of the Lakes line is as close as you can get to the central Lakes by train. The west coast main line runs south to north stopping at Oxenholme Lake District, Penrith and Carlisle. The Cumbrian coastal line enjoys some spectacular scenery as it follows the coast from Lancaster to Carlisle. Other rail lines to Cumbria include the Settle to Carlisle line and the Newcastle to Carlisle line which are also well known for scenery. As well as the national network trains, there are two popular tourist railways at Lakeside & Haverthwaite and Ravenglass & Eskdale.
